I took pictures when the snowstorm of January 2011 occurred. I put some of the pictures together and made a youtube video out of it.

ha, honestly i don't expect any. it seems like in the last few years we've gotten more than we have in the past, but last year was a wash. it usually just ends up being rainy and cloudy. i always tell people that we don't really have four seasons down hereó we don't have a "winter" in the sense that most people think of, we basically have autumn-type weather for several months. for some reason it always heats up near the beginning of january, sometimes up to 80 degrees, then it gets cold again for a couple of weeks.

One of the nice things about telecommuting is that I don't have to drive to work in order to work if there's snowstorm.

Thankfully, I love my job, so...

I expect we'll get several inches but I'm praying for no snow and warm temps!

You are lucky that you like your job so much. I wouldn't say that I like my job. It's more so tolerable.

I want to see close to a foot of snow, but probably 6 inches.

Why is it, regardless of the amount, when it snows that everyone and their friggin' cousin has to get in an automobile and go "NO WHERE!"? Yet seem to put themselves and others in harm's way!?

Idiots; I tell ya!

...I'm going to the islands, never any snow (especially if that "Bozo" gets re-elected)!

We usually get a good snow covering every few years (or so) and that is good enough for me. I usually have to work either way.

I don't like week-long snows here, but 1 day or so is long enough. Years ago, I had shoveled snow up north, so don't really miss living in it. They can keep their snow and cold.
